{  ٱلَّذِينَ يُنفِقُونَ أَمۡوَٲلَهُم بِٱلَّيۡلِ وَٱلنَّهَارِ سِرًّ۬ا وَعَلَانِيَةً۬ فَلَهُمۡ أَجۡرُهُمۡ عِندَ رَبِّهِمۡ وَلَا خَوۡفٌ عَلَيۡهِمۡ وَلَا هُمۡ يَحۡزَنُونَ  }
                                   
{ Those who spend their wealth (in Allâh's Cause) by night and day, in secret and in public, they shall have their reward with their Lord. On them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. } Qur’an 2: 274



{  يَـٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ لَا تُبۡطِلُواْ صَدَقَـٰتِكُم بِٱلۡمَنِّ وَٱلۡأَذَىٰ كَٱلَّذِى يُنفِقُ مَالَهُ ۥ رِئَآءَ ٱلنَّاسِ وَلَا يُؤۡمِنُ بِٱللَّهِ وَٱلۡيَوۡمِ ٱلۡأَخِرِ‌ۖ  }

{ O you who believe! Do not render in vain your Sadaqah (charity) by reminders of your generosity or by injury, like him who spends his wealth to be seen of men, and he does not believe in Allâh, nor in the Last Day. } Qur’an 2:264

Hadith

Abu Hurairah (RadiAllahu anhu) reported Allah's Messenger (SallaAllahu alayhi wa salam) as saying: "Charity does not in any way decrease the wealth and the servant who forgives, Allah adds to his respect; and the one who shows humility, Allah elevates him in the estimation (of the people)." (Muslim Vol. 4, Hadith 6264)


Abu Musa narrated that the Prophet (SallaAllahu alayhi wa salam.) said, "Every Muslim has to give in sadaqa (charity)." The people asked, "O Allah's Messenger (SallaAllahu alayhi wa salam.)! If someone has nothing to give, what will he do?" He said, "He should work with his hands and benefit himself and also give in charity (from what he earns)." The people further asked, "If he cannot do even that?" He replied, "Then he should help the needy who appeal for help." Then the people asked, "If he cannot do that?" He replied, "Then he should perform all that is good and keep away from all that is evil and this will be regarded as charitable deeds." (Bukhari Vol. 2, Hadith 524)

 

A person who practices charity so secretly that his left hand does not know what his right hand has given (i.e. nobody knows how much he has given in charity).
(Bukhari, Book 2, Volume 24, Hadith 504)

 

Prophet (saw) said ‘Do charity which the right hand does and the left hand does not know about the right hand.’
"Spend in charity and do not keep count for then Allah will also keep count in giving you provision."
"Do not show lethargy or negligence in giving alms and charity till your last breath."

 

The rich among us can earn more rewards if we give part of our wealth to the poor members of our relatives, friends, neighbours and the society at large. If we have the ability to extend sadaqah especially to other poor Muslims outside our community or country then we must extend our help. Another virtuous way of giving sadaqah is by supporting individuals who are doing Da'wah and expanding Islamic education.

 

Let us prepare ourselves for the everlasting world to come. Let us be among those who will earn Allah's rewards in Jannah through giving sadaqah in many ways. Let us continue earning Allah's rewards of our good deeds by giving sadaqah that continues to benefit others. Let us think of giving sadaqah to support Islamic projects like building of masajid, Islamic schools, Islamic libraries, Islamic education centres, orphanages and da'wah centres. If Allah has blessed us with wealth, let us not delay to build any or all of the said Islamic projects for the sole pleasure of Allah (SWT). If we do so, we will certainly attain the rewards of doing good deeds continuously even after we die. Let us be inspired to give sadaqah fe sabilillah.

 

Abu Dharr (r.a.) narrated that Allah's Messenger (s.a.w.s.) said, "Those who have much wealth (in this world) will be the least rewarded (in the Hereafter) except those who do like this and like this (i.e., spend their money in charity)." (Bukhari, Vol. 8, Hadith 285).

 

Ya Allah forgive us in our shortcomings, have mercy upon us and protect us from the hell fire, and make us from the mutaqqen, those who perform good deeds and give in sadaqah. Amen.

 

   { And whatever good you put forward for yourselves – you will find it with Allah. It is better and greater in reward }
Qur’an 73:20

Sadaqa Zakat Fitra


Sadaqa Fitra in Islam is given to the poor during Ramadan time, a day before salat al Eid. The amount to be paid must be enough to feed someone well in their society, for example in this society it would be £5. Every individual Muslim needs to pay – Male or female, adult or child to fulfil their Sadaqa Fitra. The head of the household can pay on behalf of the other members.


The main purpose of Sadaqa Fitra is to provide the poor with a means with which they can celebrate the festival of breaking the fast (`Eid al-Fitr) along with the rest of the Muslims.
Every Muslim is required to pay Sadaqa Fitra at the conclusion of the month of Ramadan as a token of thankfulness to God for having enabled him or her to observe the obligatory fast. Its purpose is: As a levy on the fasting person. This is based on the hadith: The Prophet of Allah said, "The fasting of the month of fasting will be hanging between earth and heavens and it will not be raised up to the Divine Presence without paying the Sadaqa Fitra."

 

To purify those who fast from any indecent act or speech and to help the poor and needy. The latter view is based upon the hadith from Ibn `Abbas who related, “The Prophet of Allah enjoined Sadaqa Fitra on those who fast to shield them from any indecent act or speech, and for the purpose of providing food for the needy. It is accepted as Sadaqa Fitra for the one who pays it before the `Eid prayer, and it is just sadaqah for the one who pays it after the prayer.” [Abu Dawood - Eng. transl. vol. 2, p. 421, no. 1605 - rated Sahih] But One who forgets to pay this Sadaqa Fitra on time should do so as soon as possible even though it will not be counted as Sadaqa Fitra.


Sadaqa Fitra is only Wajib for a particular period of time. If one misses the time period without a good reason, he has sinned and cannot make it up. This form of charity becomes obligatory from sunset on the last day of fasting and remains obligatory until the beginning of `Eid Prayer (i.e. shortly after sunrise on the following day). However, it can be paid prior to the above mentioned period, as many of the Sahabah (companions of the Prophet) used to pay Sadaqah Fitra a couple days before the `Eid.

 

After the spread of Islam the jurists permitted its payment from the beginning and middle of Ramadan so as to ensure that the Sadaqa fitra reached its beneficiaries on the day of `Eid. It is particularly emphasized that the distribution be before the `Eid prayers in order that the needy who receive it are able to use the Fitr to provide for their dependents on the day of `Eid.


The amount of Sadaqa Fitra is the same for everyone regardless of their different incomes; you can pay more if you wish but not less. The minimum amount is one Sa` (four double handfuls) of food, grain or dried fruit for each member of the family. This calculation is based on Ibn 'Umar's report that the Prophet said that Sadaqa al-Fitr is compulsory and payable by a Sa` of dried dates or a Sa` of barley. But today, the easiest way is to pay is by cash through Muslim Ummah. Make sure that you pay three days before the Eid day, so it can reach the poor people and they can celebrate Eid with the Muslim Ummah.


If you wish to pay your Sadaqa Fitra through Muslim Ummah you can pay to this account using the reference Sadaqa Fitra. You can pay for however many people you wish for example the required number of people in your household. The recipient will receive the full amount you give without any decrease.
